By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on March 29, 2012
Format: DVD
History Channel's marksmanship reality competition returns for its third season with "Top Shot: The Gauntlet." In a somewhat polarizing second season, many viewers were either delighted by or disappointed by the inclusion of additional non-shooting gamesmanship from surprising sources and the emergence of the show's most controversial contestant yet. Purists may want to see this show geared toward the best and most talented candidate winning, but that's not necessarily the way of contemporary reality programming. There is nothing particularly unique about the format of the show which mirrors countless other elimination contests across the television landscape. It seems to be inescapable!

With the subject matter being guns and recreational shooting, however, the show really caters to a widespread sport that you don't see embraced very often in traditional programming. Thus, lovers of target practice and marksmanship have a show that they can call their own. It's not an exclusive club, however, those that love reality competitions but have never been to a shooting range can also have a bit of fun. The show has the expected reality quirks that you either embrace or loathe. There's quick cut editing for dramatic affect, enthusiastic but obvious commentary from the host ("It's a hit" Survivor alum Colby Donaldson might exclaim despite the fact that we've just watched the impact), and eliminations that are based just as much on politics and game-playing as opposed to outright talent (due to team competitions).

That being said, "The Gauntlet" seems a little more straight-forward than the previous season--a return to basics, if you will.

Being someone who generally enjoys competitive reality shows and guns, I ordered this show having never seen it and having no real expectations. After watching and enjoying all 12 episodes, I was really pleasantly surprised. It's a great show!! I liked the mix of characters, and was thinking I would like some more then others, however grew to absolutely hate one person and really like a couple others that suprised me. There is just the right ammount of mix of competition shooting and character development. Pretty much all the competetors were perfessional and kept things honest and high class, a welcome change to most reality programming where its a lot of undermining and backstabbing and trash talking. These guys are professional and have a great sportsmanship attitude.

If you haven't seen any of the other two seasons like me, I'll warn you that in this season they bring out the past two seasons winners at one of the challenges. I will still order the other two seasons even though I now know who wins. The challenges are fun to watch and exciting. All in all, a great surprising show! Worth purchasing and watching!

Want to learn about every type of Weapon from a throwing knife to a Gatling gun or mountain cannon?? Then this series of shows are for you. They are a REAL reality show with a competition between some truly amazing marksman and it also gives enough info to learn about how each weapon works, who uses it, what era it is or was most used, etc. great show! The best of ll these is the most recent All-Star season because it took out the politics of who likes who between the contestants and just leaves it up to the skill and nothing else.

I bought this season of top shot mostly because I knew the guy that won that year, but the wide veriety of weapons and challenges they came up with for them was very interesting. The interesting thing to me was that none of the "professionals" performed as well as the bunch of back woods nuts
I spent most of my life hanging out with do in simalar situations. Get a bunch of back woods red necks bored and give them an abundance of weapons and ammo and we challenge ourselve in much the same way with out the vote offs and big money prize, but just to see what we can do. Recon thats why
the counrty boy that runs a christain youth camp for a living won, He had nothing to prove he was just having fun. GRIZZ

If you want to see a navy seal act like a spoiler toddler, then you need to buy this season.
Also the guy that deserves to win, wins. They fire some nice weapons and I would say this is the best season
of 1,2,3. I have yet to see any past season 3.

Only regret is not seeing Mike put Jake through a window.

A combo of marksmen competition and reality show. Although I find the format of Season 5 - The All Stars much better than the first four seasons, these seasons are still great to watch for the variety of weapons they have to master and compete with. Starting with 16 marksmen, it gets whittled down to a final 'Top Shot' by the end.

From primitive weapons, to modern weapons, there is probably something you haven't seen or used yourself. The competitions themselves are innovative as well; some really turn the competitors on their heads.

The 'House' drama aspect of the first four seasons is my only complaint about he show, but minor to me, since I watch for the competitions and weapons.

If you like watching men and women shoot difficult targets, as well as some trick shots, and like seeing many different types of weapons, then I think you'll like these seasons.
